Sorry, yeah. In response to your question Jelena, if you'd asked me this time last year I'd have suggested General Practice, but I want to keep a more open mind for now.

(So I'm probably going to end up as a GP.)

Man, that sounds like a crappy deal to me. Moms are overbearing enough without having a medical degree.


On the other hand, having a doctor in the family saves one money, but still, who wants to have a doctor - even for free - who's a family member?

Weren't you just complaining about doctor's offices? One of the perks is being able to circumvent them by whining "Mom, I'm si-ick!" and being told what to do about it right there and then.

Granted, my part-time job in high school involved filing at my mom's clinic. But hey, at least I didn't have to talk to anyone! Which is definitely a step up over minimum-wage jobs in the service industry...

Oh, like there's something unpleasant about talking to people. Who's complaining now?

Talking to people is fine, except if it's part of your job. In the latter case, if people treat you like shit, you're not allowed to tell them to go fuck themselves.

I'm going to be looking for temporary work before college in a few weeks, and hey, bring on the irate, rude, and annoying customers. A little bit of imagination, deviousness, and bad advice, and I could really get some job satisfaction.

I recommend this book, written by my friend Leopold. If you lived closer to me, I'd lend you a copy.

My Mom's a doctor too. An Anaesthesist. So while she is able to judge if we're ill or not, we do eventually visit our doctor if that is the case.

Having a GP in the household rocks. I can't remember ever having been to see the person who's technically my doctor, because my father is always on hand .

There's a GP in my family.
